An anti-poaching watcher suffered minor head injuries after a truck laden
with around 4,000 bricks hit a forest department vehicle in which he was
sitting at Kanuvai on the outskirts of the city on Tuesday.

Forester R Arun Singh, 25, of Kanuvai in Thadagam, and his team members
were trying to chase a wild elephant into the forest near Kanuvai on
Tuesday morning.

The team had parked their vehicle on Pappanaickenpalayam–Kanuvai road. A
speeding truck laden with bricks hit the parked department vehicle from
behind, injuring anti-poaching watcher Rangasamy who was sitting on the
vehicle.

Though the truck did not stop after the accident, the forest department
staff chased the vehicle. The truck driver stopped the vehicle after a few
meters and managed to escape.
Thadagam police sub-inspector Arumuganainar seized the truck.

A case was filed against TMT Bricklin unit owner R Arun, owner of the truck
V Tamilarasan, and the truck driver under sections 279, 337, 379 of the
Indian Penal Code and section 21 (i) of the Mines and Minerals (Development
